    Why does importing a catalog (2K images) take so long?

    pault46515951

      I started to merge two Lightroom catalogs 24 hours ago.  It checked for duplicates for 5 hours and has been importing ever since.  I'm using an upgraded Macbook Pro and only importing around 2000 images (approx 5MB in size each).

       

      I really don't want to cancel and start over again.  My Activity Monitor shows Lighroom taking most of the computers resources but the progress bar has been stuck at 25% completion since I started importing.

       

      Suggestions?
